Dave Mathews Band
Dave Matthews Band (DMB) is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer and backing vocalist Carter Beauford, and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. Boyd Tinsley joined the band as a violinist soon after.
The group’s most recent album, 2018’s Come Tomorrow, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, making Dave Matthews Band the first group to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at the peak. As of 2018, the Dave Matthews Band had sold more than 100 million tickets since its inception and a collective 91 million CDs and DVDs combined.
The band is known for playing its songs differently each time they’re performed live. This has become a staple of DMB’s live shows since the early 1990s. Another staple of their annual summer tours is their annual stop at Jones Beach Amphitheater.
